CHERRY HILL, N.J. (CBS) – A career expo to help service members transition from military life into the civilian workforce was held today in Cherry Hill. 

Military.com and the Non Commissioned Officers Association of the United States of America(NCOA) held the event.

Hundreds of Veterans and their spouses stood in line to speak with recruiters from 30 companies like the Associated Press, Federal Bureau of Prisons, Johnson and Johnson and Lockheed Martin.

NCOA’S executive director, Clifford “Scoop” Davis.

“In this room of the 30 companies that I have, I would say 20 of them have former military people as their recruiters because they know how to translate what this kid did in active duty to what they do.”

28-year-old Marcos Cofrey was a communications technician in the Marine Corps after the service in 2006 he went to Penn State where he is majoring in Information Sciences in Technology and a minor in Security Risks and Analysis.

“Right now I want to design technology as well as be a part of the fight, so to speak, in world peace so I figured I could do both. Get my degree first, then jump on line with some of them.”
